Suzzy V - go find her & listen

Ok, this one is very hard to find for free on the net(legally, which is how I roll...)

Find a copy of Suzanne Vega's Beauty & Crime. No, Really, Go-Find-It.(yes, right now) Tracks 7  and 8. Bound & Unbound. The string arraignments alone in Bound would make it worth finding, Lyrics will cut you deep, if you've ever been where of she's relating.  Over tones - haunting.  Unbound starts out seeming almost "Walkin' on Sunshine" pop, then redeems itself admirably.  It works as a stand alone piece, but works best following bound. Kind of like sherbet after a really heavy-duty red curry dish. 

The rest of the collection is also very good, but these two cuts especially are ... Favs.
